With Norman Podhoretz, you can talk about practically anything – so Jay does. They talk about writing, of course. Few do it as well as NPod. They talk about his friend Shakespeare, and his friend Yeats. They talk about novels. (Podhoretz rates “Anna Karenina” number one.) They talk about music and ballet. Even math and science. And also politics, including Trump. And Europe – its fate. And Israel – its.

Lucky him, Jay has had many conversations with this extraordinary man. After this “Q&A,” Jay remarked, “This was maybe the best – along with all the other ones, of course.”

    Norman Podhoretz is a name I had some vague notion of for all of my adult life. He was the editor of Commentary, a (the?) leader of the Neo-Conservative political “movement”, and the father of the inimitable John P., a man I’ve admired for many years. The 2/3 of an hour I listened in on a conversation between Mr. Podhoretz and his friend Jay was time exceedingly well spent. Thank you, sirs. I’m going to phone my Dad now.
